Tender is an arts charity that works with young people to prevent domestic abuse and sexual violence by promoting healthy relationships based on equality and respect.
Founded in 2003, Tender has developed a range of award-winning arts education projects which empower young people, and the adults who work with them, to actively prevent domestic abuse and sexual violence and promote gender equality in their schools, youth centres and communities.
We are an organisation of 16 permanent staff, with an income of c£1m p/a from trusts & foundations, statutory, corporate partners and major donors.
Tender is in a strong financial position from which to build. The #metoo movement has raised significant awareness of abuse and sexual violence, and we have never been in a better position to grow our fundraising. In the last three years we have diversified our income base, in doing so creating a range of activities including a major donor initiative – ‘Tender Guardians’ – as well as corporate partnerships in the banking and legal sectors.
The new role of Head of Development will lead our fundraising activity, managing major donor and corporate relationships whilst overseeing a team of 2 staff across trusts and foundations and events. This person will contribute to the ongoing relationship management of a range of different stakeholders including senior volunteers as well as our charity patron, Olivia Colman.
Coming from a background in relationship management of corporate partners or major donors, you will bring line management experience as well as a passion for education and the role of the arts in empowering young people. We’re a close-knit team who takes our work very seriously, but not ourselves, so we’d love to hear from all fundraisers with a sense of fun and a proactive approach!
